Camp insanity from the late Ken Russell that despite its budgetary restrictions is a fair amount of fun. Dreadful performances, dreadful sets, dreadful props yet somehow entertaining. Good song score mostly performed by Gallon Drunk helps. One does miss the calculated insanity of Ken Russell.
to call this Ken Russel's masterpiece really bad, without justifying display total lack of imagination, why watch Ken Russel if you are going to call 'Fall from the Louse of Usher' bad. i totally totally loved every minute of this low budget masterpiece, over the top, iconoclastic, provocative, amusing!
A hilariously campy sendup of the works of Poe. Featuring a stereotype German shrink, a sexy nurse, a remote controlled gorilla, lady wrestling, ghosts fucking, a microwave that thinks it's a tv/vcr, Poe poems re-imagined as goth rock songs and an orgy of blowup sex dolls and inflatable dinosaurs. Amazing.
It is hard to tell whether this devoutly low-budget surrealist expedition from the ‘unbankable’ Ken Russell borders on the inanely insane or the insanely inane. I would recommend this to nobody, unless of course, like myself, you find any Ken Russell film to be a religious experience.
